I agree that committee is supposed make its report sometime this Spring. More likely than not it will be in favor given how the membership was stacked.

But with the SACS probation, the misallocated $5M at UTB that had to get repaid, and now the Governor announcing a hiring freeze, I'm pretty sure the bosses in Austin are going to tell us to hold off even making an announcement of intention for at least a few years.

Unless some donor comes up with $10M or so.

My question is: will the Southland immediately invite UTRGV once football begins play? They have the facilities - football and basketball now. Or will they play as an FCS Ind. for awhile or try for the Big South football/A-Sun OLY combo?

I would hope we stay in the wac somehow. I feel the southland is like purgatory. Not even SFA can escape it.

Looks like the target date for football is 2020 and a new stadium. The edinburg mayor was speaking at a real estate forum and was talking about all the things happening. Utrgv football was one of the things he mentioned. Apparently they already have some schematics of a stadium 3 times larger than the new soccer stadium that just got built.

Interesting. Where'd you hear it, or were you at the event yourself?

Thanks Vaq. People that work for UTRGV have to find out what's happening through the Monitor or other sites, Bailey's not much of a communicator.

It sounds like it's still at the hopes and dreams stage.
